Horns by Joe Hill


Joe Hill talks about his new novel, Horns. Hill says the story is about Ig, a decent guy who has always tried to do the right thing. When his girlfriend is killed and everyone suspects that he did it even though he is never charged with the crime. He goes in a downward spiral and wake up one morning and discovers he has grown horns and inherited the powers of the devil.

Hill says, "I sort of have this idea about the devil. He's really in every story. There's always a character who walks on stage and pulls the other characters towards what's worst in them."

Hill also reveals that he writes to music, including Kiss. He also says he wrote Horns for "money and chicks." Take a look:
